Before Hiring a Teacher or Similar Services!

Dear Readers,

Before hiring a teacher, it´s very difficult to decide whether the professional you´re about to hire will meet your expectations as far as learning is concerned.

So, my suggestion is:

– Make sure the person has the credentials, that is, at least 3 certificates of proficiency in the language, has ever lived abroad for some time or taken courses there, as well as check the level of satisfaction of previous clients.

And above all, look for someone who has great passion and love for what he does.

Teaching is an art that must come from the heart and should only be done by professionals who are people-oriented, love their job and find it rewarding helping others.

This,  by itself,  can minimize the possibility of whatever frustration it might occur in the process. 

And, for that matter, I´ve taken the liberty, to post some testimonials of clients and friends ( from my LINKEDIN)  I had the chance and privilege of working with,  just in case you´re considering LCM traduções in São Paulo – Brazil, to help you in the areas of ESL – English as a Second Language, translation or simultaneous interpretation.

“I had the opportunity to have classes with Luiz and I can really assure that I got substantial improvement in my English communication skills. People who I work with could easily notice the difference, even after a few classes. I could also cope with several different professional and personal challenges that I was not so familiar with.

He is very knowledgeable, international experienced and a talented teacher which combined with his excellent professional competence and great personal values make him the best learning resource that I have ever experienced. Even if you look for a native teacher, I would strongly recommend that you have a trial class with Luiz first.” February 28, 2011

“Luiz was the interpreter for a group of Brazilian school principals who came to the U.S. on a Fulbright Exchange Program. His efforts made the trip a great success for both the Brazilian principals who spoke only Portuguese and the American educators who spoke only English. I would highly recommend him for any similar efforts.” January 27, 2011

“I have had the plesure of working with Mr. Luiz Carvalho in 2010, when the award winning Brazilian Principals visted my school, Schurz High School, in Chicago. Mr. Carvalho was the ultimate genteleman and professional and proved to be extremely knowledgeable about the City of Chicago. He worked well, not only with his Brazilian collegues, but also with my students and staff. His command of both the Portuguese and English languages is commendable. Luiz is a superior translator and things flow smoothly as he performs his skills. It would be an honor and pleasure to work with him on educational endeavors in the future.
